Roy Broomfield is the Senior Training Specialist at Instructional Technologies Inc. He started his career in the transportation industry in England and after obtaining an HGV 1 spent the next 12 years driving commercially across Europe, operating for several large well-known companies moving everything from boats to explosives.
In 1998 while looking for opportunities to increase his experience, he was offered a driving position with Schneider and was quickly recruited into their training team, because of his varied experience and background. Over the next 15 year, he had the opportunity to fulfil several training roles at Schneider, finally as a member of the curriculum development team, responsible for over 150 instructors at 17 different training locations across North America.
Since leaving Schneider National, he has held leadership positions at several transportation-training providers. These positions have included both the use of simulators and e-learning for driver training as well as instructor led training, before returning to work with Instructional Technologies Inc. in Vancouver, Washington, who he first had the opportunity to work with while at Schneider.
When he is not providing training solutions, Roy enjoys the outdoor life, especially mountain biking and traveling with his wife in their RV to find new locations to ride their bicycles.
